"Every year, right around the time between Martin Luther King Day and the beginning of Black History Month, the effort to distort Dr. King's life and legacy seems to intensify. Some years, we see conservatives preposterously assert that if Dr. King were alive today, he would join today's neo-confederate Republican Party. Other years, it is deception via omission—we see replays of Dr. King's 1963 "I Have a Dream" speech, but do not see any of his speeches about war and poverty. "*
